The first and maybe final solo movie of Black Widow has just released its last trailer. Natasha Romanoff played by Scarlett Johansson will get back to her origins – and this time, her mission is to take down a dangerous mercenary who’s recruiting young women to create more combat operators. This would be sort of an origin story for Black Widow – people have been asking Marvel to make a solo movie for her ever since the first Avenger movie. Black Widow 2020 would technically be part of Marvel’s Phase 3, as the events of the movie happen right after Captain America: Civil War.

Natasha/Black Widow is Russian – she was trained as an assassin/spy by a secretive organization known as the Red Room. In a mission, Clint Barton/Hawkeye managed to save and recruit her to SHIELD. Afterward, they joined the Avengers and everything plays out like the movies. Her sacrifice in Endgame for the Soul Stone was partly because of her blood-filled past.

Based on the previous few trailers and the official synopsis of the movie, we can more or less thread together the plot. Natasha would find herself alone and forced to confront her past and deal with the new threat that comes with it.  She would have to reunite with her old team: Alexei Shostakov, aka Red Guardian (David Harbour), Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), and Melina Vostokoff (Rachel Weisz) – all expertly trained operatives. The main villain of this movie would be Taskmaster, a dangerous villain capable of mimicking the fighting skills of any opponents due to his photographic memory. The guy is also the boss of the Red Room.

Taskmaster is able to mimic almost everything an Avenger could do

This movie is going to be filled with high octane action from beginning to end, however, everything would be about Natasha’s personal journey. Her character would be redefined after the events of Black Widow. This movie should have been made before Infinity War, not after.

Black Widow is going to be released in less than 2 months – on May 1, 2020. For more information related to this movie, please check out this post.
